...Mountain snowmelt runoff below 10,000 foot elevation
forecasted to peak early next week... 

...Western and central Wyoming rivers expected to crest by the 
middle of next week...

Snowmelt runoff will significantly increase through the weekend with 
with maximum snowmelt runoff occurring early next week. Afternoon 
temperatures at the 9500 foot elevation will be in lower 60s Saturday
and warming into the middle to upper 60s for Sunday through
Tuesday. Morning low temperatures will be at or above the frost 
temperatures Saturday through Tuesday.

Isolated afternoon mountain showers and thunderstorms are forecasted 
Sunday through Tuesday. Cooler mountain temperatures are expected by 
next Thursday afternoon. There may may a greater chance for mountain showers
and thunderstorms for next Friday and Saturday. At this time, it is uncertain 
as to the intensity, location, and areal coverage of the showers.

Smaller creeks and streams will be running near bankfull conditions by 
early Monday with main stem rivers running at moderate to high levels by 
the middle of next week. Minor flooding along small streams and creeks
may occur over low lying areas and near creek and stream confluence locations.

The Little Wind River near Riverton is expected to peak to near flood stage by 
Wednesday afternoon. The Big Wind River at Riverton is forecasted to crest
between action stage and flood stage by early Thursday morning.

Avoid crossing mountain creeks and streams in the late afternoon through early 
evening hours as the water levels are the highest during that time. Keep small 
children away from the banks of high flowing creeks and streams as they can
be quickly swept away.
